"My name is Erin Neace and I am the conservative Republican challenging John Becker for State Representative. 

That's not the only unusual thing about me:

I was adopted at birth because my biological mother was addicted to drugs. Even though she struggled with addiction and could have easily chose abortion, she chose to give me life instead. For that reason I am a living testimony of PRO-LIFE.

As a teenager, I struggled to find my place in this world. I dropped out of high school, had a daughter, and was on food stamps. But, God continued to love me through all of it.

Not only did I get off of government assistance, but I went back to school, graduated from college- the first in all of my family to do so, and additionally got my Master’s Degree in Business. 

I now have two successful small businesses, have been married for nine years, have 4 children- all who love the Lord. Jesus Christ is my personal Lord & Savior- my family and I worship and serve at our church, Ambassador’s Pointe. By the grace and mercy of God- I have built a family, a business, and a life in Union Township. 

I’m a conservative because conservatism is my personal story.

Pro-life: I am pro-life, anti-abortion, with no exceptions. I am only here today because my mother rejected abortion, chose life, and gave me up for adoption. Every child deserves that same chance.

Pro-business: I own 2 successful small businesses, which means I know how hard big government makes it to succeed. A government "by the people" should make it easier to succeed, not harder! Our legislature should be lowering taxes and eliminating needless regulations so that Ohio employers and employees can pursue their American dream.

Pro-gun: Our 2nd amendment right to bear arms is vital for our self-defense and for a safe and secure society. I am an NRA member and believe that we should be able to exercise our rights without infringement.

Anti-Obamacare: Government run healthcare is a disaster. Liberals who are for the Ohio Medicaid expansion say they are compassionate, but there is nothing compassionate about unaffordable healthcare where bureaucrats make your medical decisions. The compassionate thing to do would be to unleash the American free market on the healthcare industry and put the power in OUR hands, not the government's.

As Vice President Pence likes to say, “I am a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order.” I believe in the Constitution, in federalism, and in small AND limited government.

We live in a capitalistic country whereby competition is good for the consumer- which is YOU, and ME (the voters). 

Every two years- 99 seats come up for re-election in the house for a PURPOSE. We have decided that it is good for the people to have options. 

I have a deep investment in this community- which means that my ROI  (return on investment) is very important to me. I have my family, my home, my kids go to public school here, my business is here, my employees live here, my church is here. Therefore, my investment is this county is deep rooted enough that I will fight for it. It is in my best interest and yours to do so.

I am a successful, educated, and optimistic candidate who will fight for what’s right- no matter what the opposition looks like or where it comes from. I didn’t go through all that I have- to sit on the sidelines any longer". 

Erin Neace believes the only way to understand and appreciate all the liberties we enjoy as Americans and Ohioans, is by working hard. As a small business owner, mother of 4, and wife, Erin Neace has a firm understanding of what Ohioans face everyday. She knows the struggle is real. From an ever increasing opiate crisis to dealing with the detriment of Common Core, Neace is very in touch with the realities folks in Clermont County experience.

Neace has a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from the Northern Kentucky University, as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Organizational Leadership. She started her company in 2015, after leaving her corporate job as a healthcare sourcing analyst. She chose Union Township as the location for her store. Neace has lived in Union Township for over 8 years with her husband and 4 children, and has been a long time Clermont County resident.

Her call to public service came soon after opening her store inside The Eastgate Mall. Being a business owner opened Neace’s eyes to the real struggles that everyday Clermont County residents and business owners face, and the need for stronger servant leadership.

Opioid Crisis in Clermont County

The CDC reports about 142 people die EVERYDAY from overdoses- 86% of the overdose deaths in Ohio involve an Opiate. We not only have a drug problem, but we have a prescription problem, physical/sexual abuse problem, mental health problems, and in order to address the issue of opioids, we must also address the deep rooted inception of why people take opioids. Taking the heroin away, does not take the suffering away for the addict, nor does it make them a more productive and contributing citizen.

I applaud Sheriff Leahy, as well as Clermont County’s officers and staff  for not only keeping our county safe, but also leading the fight against the opioid epidemic. Leadership is inherently more impactful when leaders have personal experience in the realm in which they influence.

I recently became aware of the Clermont County CASC program (Clermont County Community Alternative Sentencing Center). The program and center focuses on:

  • Reducing the numbers of individuals being referred to jail
  • Ensuring the program positively contributes to the community and is valued by the criminal justice system
  •  Reducing recidivism by providing drug and alcohol treatment, cognitive therapy, life skills, employment

    programming and other related services

  •   Encouraging offenders to maintain employment (58% of CASC participants were referred to a job making between $8.10-$18.00 per hour)
  •  Reducing costs related to jail operation (CASC participants cost the county 9% less to house them at CASC than in jail)

The CASC program not only benefits those suffering from addiction, but also relieves pressure from the criminal justice system by saving money on incarcerated offenders who qualify and want help. The program is selective with offenders who have committed misdemeanors, and have a higher probability of rehabilitation.

CASC has done a considerable amount of statistical and case study on the program’s early success. The data proves that investing resources back into people who have a desire to change, creates successful results. When people meet purpose their lives can be radically transformed.

Clermont County Fair GOP Booth

I spent a lot of time this week at the GOP booth at the CCF- it was exciting to meet other strong Republicans, talk with voters, and gather support for my campaign! I look forward to many more opportunities to meet with folks about the real issues of District 65 in Clermont County.
